Palm oil. It's a new kind of currency…liquid gold! Palm oil is a lucrative industry that is worth an estimated 17 billion US dollars annually in Malaysia alone. But has the popularity of palm oil grown at a price? What are the costs to the planet and human health for those using palm oil?

While some see it as a strong, renewable economic engine, others only see it as a major cause of deforestation that contributes to the planet's climatic crisis. The story of oil is not a simple one. Amazingly, one in ten products in grocery stores across the world contain some trace of palm oil, be it in food or cosmetics. However, despite its popularity, many people have never heard of palm oil or simply do not know they are using it. A versatile product with uses that range from cooking oil to cosmetics; palm oil has found new popularity as natural solution to the problem of trans-fats, which have been shown to seriously damage human health.
